If theres one thing that stands out about Olivia Lane, its her pure, unbridled energy. Its reflected in her big, dynamic voice; in her performance, which bursts with passion and levity; and by her simple presence, which can dissolve you in laughter and make you grin from ear to ear. Not every day does an artist come around able to so effortlessly meld a freewheeling spirit with poignant, inspirational songs and an irrepressible drive, but Lanes one of them. Because she knows as well as anyone how easily music can inspire a smile.
A lot of my material is about following your dreams, Lane says. About being inspired. Life is wonderful, and why not sing about it? She certainly lives that ethos: Lanes been following her dream since she was a small child, singing songs for her parents in their Houston living room. Her mother, a regional Texas singer, was the ultimate roll model, encouraging her daughter by playing her the greats Linda Ronstadt, Patsy Cline, Elvis and making sure she could express herself in any way possible. She noticed I was this crazy child with a loud voice, Lane recalls, laughing. So she put me in community theater and choir and completely opened up my world.
